"1 m reformed flirt." I onttdes E. L. O.. young womm reader of The
Evening World. In the, South, where I was born and where 1 lived until
I was nineteen. N Is an natural for a girl to flirt aa for her to breathe.
When I came to New York and be

offlio I expected to troal moil with
the game eaae snd familiarity which
la cuatoniary In my home town. But
a few unpleasant experiences noon
taught me that the worda flirt and

In Now Vork aa In the South It la j
now my opinion that most of the I
men hero have aeen so much of the I
aeamy aide of life, that they have
reached the concl union that life, la
all aeama. They can't believe Mm: a
glrl-fllrt la simply young and fond of
life and excitement. They take
dreadful meantnga from her moat
Innocent worda. They begin to won
der, aa they aay. what her game la.
That ahe haa no game, that ahe'a
only a foolish young thing who la fond of admiration, la beyond their com
prehenalon or belief. My advice to glrla la: Flirt at home where you are
known and where you know the men and have been brought up with then.
But when In Rome be mighty wary of the Romans. You don't apeak their
language and they are aure to mlaunderatand youra. The definition of
attentlona without Intention' don't apply to the New York man'a concep
tion of the meaning ot flirtation. Me baa lntentlona, or he would not pay
attentlona. That, In hie opinion, would be a waate of money. The man
who aenda a girl flowera, takee her to the theatre or to aupper, nays her
pretty compliment, Ac., with no thought beyond the Innocent enjoyment of
the moment, la what the New York man calla a ''boob.' Since I reached
yeara of dlacretlon I have never gone out with any man who could not
qualify for the boob champlonahlp. So moat of my frlenda are not among
ihe native born. They are clean, wholesome Southern or Western men, I
who know a nice girl when they aee one. and who don't mistake Innocent ,
ninauon ror aometning else.
